LEGAL TERMINATIONS OF ABORTION: WHY, WHEN AND NOW?

LEGAL TERMINATIONS OF ABORTION: WHY, WHEN AND NOW?
Important reasons for L-T.s exist. A mother acquiring rubella in the first few weeks of pregnancy; severe viral or bacterial Infection in early pregnancy; the need to take heavy medication in early pregnancy; these are some of the reasons that few would argue about. The risk of Down’s syndrome, or spina bifida, increased if there is already one child in the family with these disorders, are well established. However, the entire question is open to extensive discussion. As we said before, get in touch with a competent gynaecologist if you have any problems in this direction.
In early pregnancy, termination is carried out by a method called suction curettage, a safe, quick and efficient method. In later pregnancy (in the fourth, fifth or sixth months, the so-called second trimester) special fluid is often injected into the amniotic sac containing the developing infant, and this soon causes an abortion.
Prostaglandin, a powerful hormone causing uterine contraction, is also being used as another satisfactory method. It may be used orally, as an injection or, more commonly, as a suppository introduced into the vaginal canal.
The risks of a legal termination, carried out in a modern hospital with all facilities, are small. Mortality rates have been quoted as three per 100000 women, much lower than the maternal mortality rate. ‘Moreover, contrary to some predictions, the repotted incidence of debilitating remorse or regrets following an induced abortion has been less than 5 per cent.’
